Progress continues on the Salamander Resort & Spa, which will open in less than a year in the historic 18th century village of Middleburg, Va.
Located on 340 acres, the 168-room resort is only a 30-minute drive from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), which serves 23 million passengers a year from 125 destinations.
Upon arriving in the town of Middleburg, visitors discover that the country lifestyle makes time tick a little more slowly. But, despite the serene setting, there is a plethora of nearby and resort-based recreational activities from which to choose. Salamander Resort is also positioned at the center of Northern Virginia’s emerging wine country – commonly known as D.C.’s Wine Country, and there are over 50 wineries located within a 60-minute drive. The closest vineyard is only two minutes away from the resort’s front doors, and the area’s topography and award-winning varietals have prompted favorable comparisons with California’s noted wine regions. In addition to offering a Grape Escape package, the resort will also arrange private tours to vineyards and provide country picnic baskets filled with fresh, farm-to-table cuisine.
Designed to blend into its natural environment and respect the architectural traditions of Virginia’s countryside, Salamander Resort & Spa features luxurious rooms and suites inspired by renowned designer Thomas Pheasant, an exquisite 23,000-square-foot spa with one-of-a-kind features such as “treehouse” treatment rooms, Virginia Piedmont-inspired restaurant and banquet dining overseen by Washington, D.C. Chef of the Year Todd Gray, a media-ready Cooking Studio, Wine Bar and Culinary Garden.
The resort also features 12,000 square feet of indoor conference and event facilities, including a 5,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom and unique outdoor spaces like the Grand Lawn, Courtyard Garden and a restored 100-year-old Stallion Barn. Already registered for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, the Salamander Resort & Spa sales team is now accepting group bookings for 2013 and beyond.
Rates during peak season at Salamander Resort & Spa range from $425 to $575 per night for a deluxe 540-square-foot guest room, depending on views and unique features such as working fireplaces. Suite pricing ranges from $775 to $3,500 per night. Special group rates, pre-opening packages and creative teambuilding options are also available.
